Gisela's Giambattista's!

Ever since I saw Mary Kate wear these killer "Victoria" Giambattista Valli platforms (named after Victoria Beckham) to the designer's party in 2008 I immediately needed them in my life! Thank god for Century 21!




I have no idea when I will wear these or even how but dam they look
good! So I figured let me have a lil' fun trying to build an outfit around these at home where it's safe, these shoes are a definite


As seen on the Spring 08 runway


and again in Fall 08!


Here's MK wearing the heck out of them!



This is a snapshot from youtube of supermodel Iman on the set of Project Runway Canada. I styled her for the show last summer and when this famous Giambattista dress (previously worn by Charlize Theron) and Victoria shoes came in the mail I was overwhelmed by the beauty of both!


Blurry pic but I love the side view of the shoes :-)


With my Valli's I wore a Valentino feathered top and H&M skirt, studded collars from Loehmans Dept. store.


Btw, major YSL sample sale in Chelsea last week and I scored these!I purchased extras to sell on ebay too.

YSL Stretch silk panel corset belt: buy it here



Leather hat from Fall 07: buy it here



YSL iPod case. I don't own an iPod but I thought it'd make a cute lil' purse..maybe?? lol

  2. Mmmmh Actually the black socks strongly emphasize your feet fineries' immaculate "exquisiteness", AND the "Urban Ballet Dancer-esque" skirt sublimates their "Fetish Girly" Soul, on such a Giddy way !!!
    This "Sexy/romantic with a slight cabaret aesthetic twist" outfit is simply Stunning .
    ps: Hope you'e Well Dears.

  20. that valentino top is gorgeous!!the shoes are freaking fab!

  21. I looooooooooooove your outfit!!!!
    The Giambattista Valli platforms are amazing and your Valentino feathered top is so lovely!

  22. Hey Gisela, I stayed in Dundee with my aunt and uncle. We go at least once a year, have done ever since I was a wee girl! The antiques centre is at Abernyte, and its about 15 mins from Dundee.
    I'd love to enter your competition, but you already wrote about the one lady I idolise! I'll have a think and see if there's anyone else I can put forward, but I just adore Catherine Baba, not many people can top her in my eyes! She is utter perfection

  23. Sooo jealous! Those heels are ferosh. Century 21--yet another reason why I need to move to New York. While I was there I found out there was another Century 21 in Brooklyn. Have you guys been to that one? Is it any good?
    Much love,

  24. Thanks for adding the new information, as well as your analysis. This is why your blog is one of the few I read that I also ever bother to comment on. I don't do it to hear myself talk - I do it because I know you actually listen.

  25. My heart beats her waves at the shore of the world and writes upon it her signature in tears with the words, “I love thee.” Do you like it?

  26. You look fabulous in those heels!
